Anthony James arrived in Seattle on Thursday night.

On Friday, he committed.

The 6-foot-5, 245-pound defensive lineman and former Texas A&M commit — one of 21 official visitors to Washington this week — became UW’s third verbal commit in the past four days, joining three-star edge Jacob Lane and three-star defensive back Diesel Gordon.

James is almost certainly the most important commit of the (albeit brief) Kalen DeBoer era at UW — ranked as a four-star recruit, the No. 7 defensive lineman in the country and the No. 54 overall prospect in the 2023 class by 247Sports.
